First conceived in the summer of 2009 by Toronto-based artist and musician John O, Diamond Rings burst onto the scene with an inventive home-crafted video for his self-released single "All Yr Songs". The single received "Best New Music" honours from the tastemakers at Pitchfork and sold out in a matter of weeks, and the video currently has over 100K views on Youtube and counting.
Special Affections is Diamond Rings' debut full-length. In keeping with his predilection for confounding public expectation, the album dabbles in a wide range of styles and soundscapes. Spacey slow jams give way to aggressive guitar rock that leads seamlessly into shuddering club beats and soaring synth lines. In addition to the previous singles "All Yr Songs" and "Wait & See", Special Affections gives Diamond Rings' fans eight new songs, including the new lead single "Something Else, and ties them together in a stylish package designed by the artist himself.
